    Are there still G1 Toys out there, I know theres none in toy stores but in pawn shops, collection places? Cause I would like to owe the complete G1 season 1-2-3 toys. I already have a few from back in the days and I remember buying Runamuck and Runabout at a garage sale i got them both for 35$ back in 93.

    The ones I already have:
    Optimus Prime
    Megatron
    Soundwave
    Omega Supreme
    Metroplex
    Wheeljack
    Runamuck
    Runabout
    Predacon(Headstrong)
    Blaster
    Thundercracker
    Bumblebee
    Cliffjumper

    Is this a serious qurstion? Just go to the for sale section here. Go to ebay. Go check out the reissues on any major online retailer like bigbadtoystore or tfaource.

    Yes start saving your pennies. There are various places on the internet where you can find vintage G1 stuff. But be careful of Knockoffs they look very convincing to the untrained eye.

    As for where to find them:

    The Junkion exchange on this message board
    Bigbadtoystore.com
    TFSource.com
    bubbleformer.com (they sell toys now as well)
    Ebay.com

    yes they are all G1 figures can be had in a variety of conditions. be prepared to open your wallet as many will not be cheap. If you want geniune G! you will need to be wary of reissues and KOs other not so much.

    use the sponsor links here, check the junkion exchange and check ebay and also check Transformerland.com as they carry an excellent selection of G1 figures, in addition to other lines.

    Don't forget Craigslist if you are in the US. I've scored many a G1 figure from Craigslist from Moms cleaning out their sons old bedrooms. Super reasonably priced too.

    Even the reissues are going up in prices. With new fans coming on board the demand for some of these items are driving up the prices.

    toy wars montreal has a couple of G1 toys. they moved though. i forgot where but if you look them up online or facebook, you'll notice that they will have tax off plus 20% on the 28th of sept. make sure to pass by there.

    super mercado on taschereau, south shore, i think has some. gotta check cybertron.ca for the sightings thread.
